There are a number of areas of the province experiencing lower than average rainfall this growing season and many crops are stressed due to that lack of rain. OMAFRA and Agricorp are actively monitoring the situation across the province. Business Risk Management programs are in place to help farmers mitigate the risks that may be beyond their control. These programs work together by providing protection for different types of losses, including those resulting from adverse weather conditions. Farmers who feel they may be eligible for support under any of the BRM programs they are enrolled in, should contact Agricorp for further information.
